Phoenix Arts and Culture One-Stop Shopping Going Statewide

April 20, 2009

Phoenix, AZ – A comprehensive on-line calendar of metro Phoenix arts and cultural events expands to include Tucson today. The goal of Showup.com is statewide coverage later this year, and Alliance for Audience/Showup.com executive director Matt Lehrman says listings on the non-profit website already are extensive.

"It's the complete calendar, and I mean absolutely comprehensive calendar, of all the theater, music, dance, art, festivals and cultural attractions going on in the greater Phoenix region and in metro Tucson."

The site provides direct links to buy tickets for events. Lehrman says there's also a place on it to access last-minute discounted tickets.

"It's kind of like TKTS, the tickets booth in Times Square in New York, where you can buy half-price tickets for Broadway, except we are completely on the Internet."

Lehrman says adding metro Tucson is a big step toward making Showup.com a statewide service.

"We are presently in discussions with other cities around the state of Arizona and are very encouraged. We believe that we are on our way to being fully statewide in perhaps a matter of months."

Lehrman says the site aims to encourage people to attend events more often and to encourage more people to attend.

Showup.com is the result of an alliance formed by arts and cultural organizations in response to the economic downturn following the September 11 attacks of 2001.
